Brittney is thankful for her man, Mike’s constant support and encouragement during and after her battle against the illness. However, the news of his life partner’s fatal illness had devastated Dirnt, and he was suddenly faced with keeping his family together.
Moreover, there was also the heartache of having to help their two little kids, Ryan Ruby and Brixton, through the ordeal. It was tough, especially on their youngest child, Ryan. However, Brittney and her husband, Mike, never lose their hope.
The couple decided to treat each day as it came and be strong for their children. According to Cade and Dirnt, Tower Oncology played a vital role in helping Dirnt and Cade process the heavy news and devise the best course of action. They had thirteen doctors look at Brittney’s case just like they do with any other cancer patient.
As documented by Brittney Cade and Mike Dirnt on their respective Instagram pages some years back, Brittney went through chemotherapy, nine grueling surgeries, and endless appointments to kick the disease. After being free from cancer, she has become a go-to for other cancer patients who want encouragement and advice through her social networking handles.
